What we're about

*** We are STILL ACTIVE and adding Virtual Events, so join us! ***

WE ARE ALSO ON FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bnseattle

A very casual group of Seattle women who get together to drink & learn about great craft beer, and just have fun with a bunch of great ladies! Any ladies, ages 21 - 101, are welcome! :) Mission: Give beer-loving women (drinkers, brewers, bartenders) an opportunity to meet other beer-loving women & share some good brews and stories in the process. Only a love of beer is required, not any level of beer knowledge. We'll learn and drink together!

• All BN events are ladies only, unless noted (i.e. when we crash public events like festivals, bring whomever!)

• Follow and tag us on Instagram: @beer_necessities_seattle

• Enjoying the group? DONATE to help us cover Meetup Group fees (and Zoom!). Send me some love-funds on Venmo @SarahLouEsh and note that it's a "BN donation'. Thank you!! - Sarah (BN Founder)

• Reach the organizers of group at beernecsea@googlegroups.com.


Back story: Sarah founded Beer Necessities in Austin in September 2014, a spinoff of her friend's group in Chicago. BN-Austin grew to over 2000 members with weekly events at bars & breweries all over Austin. They had a ton of fun, drank so much delicious beer, and made wonderful female friendships along the way. The group is still going strong, but Sarah moved to WA and started BN-Seattle. Since then, there have been groups started in Dallas, Portland, and Philadelphia! If you are interested in starting a Beer Necessities sister group in your home town, email Sarah at sarahleshelman@gmail.com -- she has all the tips and tricks ;)
